If you are injured on the job, you may have no clue as to what steps you need to follow when it comes to filing for workers compensation benefits. Since the law changes in 2007, those injured on the job can now receive up to the maximum benefit which is calculated using two-thirds of your average weekly wage. This is a tax-free benefit that is meant to help you survive financially as you recover from your work-related injury.

If you are hurt on the job while you are earning wages with other factors involved, it is important to know where you stand financially and an experienced attorney can help you decipher the process and assist you in making the right financial determinations.
